  4. A common thread among all emergent technologies is that there numerous misconceptions, general confusion, and many times, outright dismissiveness of the particular technology. While that is to be expected for most young technological innovations, it is striking in its gravity among Bitcoin’s critics and people who even still tout ‘blockchain, not Bitcoin.’ Historically, the rise of new technology — such as the Internet — presents unique challenges in helping people to overcome the barrier to understanding precisely what it is, as well as its potential. This is mainly because such technologies are unprecedented, and access to information was much less accessible before the modern web. However, with Bitcoin, it’s different. People now have access to the most open and wide-ranging repository of information in history (i.e., the Internet) and sagacious analysis of the origins of money. Despite the consistently increasing volumes of metrics, analysis, and general information on Bitcoin and its underlying technologies, the problem of onboarding more people is still evident. People may disagree with the underlying value proposition of Bitcoin, but it is continually frustrating when the arguments against it draw from a place of ignorance about basic concepts within the technology and broader monetary perspective of the legacy cryptocurrency. Conversely, for people seeking more resources on Bitcoin, it can seem like a daunting task. Varied information is dispersed across the Internet, the technology is complicated, the notion of social consensus abstract, and placing Bitcoin in the context of the history of money is bizarre for people who just learned that fiat money is a relatively new phenomenon. Curated resource lists are hard to find many times, so we decided to provide a directory of some of the best resources for learning about Bitcoin, its technology, and social/economic impact. We have created our own guide to Bitcoin here at Blockonomi, so use that as a starting point. It is by no means a comprehensive list, and there will assuredly be quality content left out, but we hope it can be a start on the journey towards greater knowledge about Bitcoin. Bitcoin Books Books are often the best way to grasp the broader concept of a complex topic before diving into the details, and fortunately, some authors have furnished excellent works to help onboard people interested in the Bitcoin ecosystem. The Bitcoin Standard: The Decentralized Alternative to Central Banking — By Saifedean Ammous Saifedean Ammous’ work is a comprehensive overview of how variants of money have developed dating back to the Yapese Rai Stones. By placing emphasis on specific characteristics of sound money and its effect on social and economic developments, Ammous provides a compelling narrative that places Bitcoin within the context of humanity’s perception of money. Mastering Bitcoin: Programming The Open Blockchain — By Andreas Antonopoulos Quite possibly the best spokesman for Bitcoin, Antonopoulos is one of the leading proponents for the legacy cryptocurrency, and his first book helped to inspire many people to join the Bitcoin community. While more technically focused than Ammous’ work, Mastering Bitcoin unveils some of the most profound design features and implications of Bitcoin and is a must-read for anyone looking to learn more. The Internet of Money (Volumes 1 & 2) — By Andreas Antonopoulos The next two works by Antonopoulos are derived from his many lectures, presentations, and public events from around the world where he has strived to promote and educate people about Bitcoin. Through a series of essays, The Internet of Money contextualizes the ‘why’ of Bitcoin and is an outstanding beginning for people looking for a broader, and briefer, overview of the cryptocurrency. Programming Bitcoin: Learn How To Program Bitcoin From Scratch — By Jimmy Song Recently released and developer-oriented, Song’s book focuses on teaching Python developers how to build a Bitcoin library from scratch. His book elucidates the more complex technical components of Bitcoin to developers (i.e., Bitcoin’s Script language), and is the most comprehensive guide to programming Bitcoin to date. Bitcoin Money: A Tale of Bitville Discovering Good Money — By Michael Caras Targeted towards children, Caras’ book takes the complex topics of Bitcoin and the economics behind it and conveys the content in a way that is digestible and valuable to children, and even adults. Essays on Bitcoin — Compiled by John Gleeson Essays on Bitcoin is a free e-book that is comprised of a series of essays from many prominent Bitcoin community members and their takes on the original cryptocurrency. Bitcoin Blogs There are some incredible blog series out there for people to follow that bring unique takes and analysis to the many components of Bitcoin that are often overlooked. From data insights to abstract takes on the social impact of Bitcoin, blog series can become one of the most intuitive ways to gather relevant perspectives on the consistently evolving Bitcoin. The Bitcoin Whitepaper by Satoshi Nakamoto Nick Szabo — The Unenumerated — Speaks for itself. Paul Sztorc — Truthcoin — Insightful and comprehensive analysis of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. Satoshi Nakamoto Institute — The Complete Writings of Satoshi Satoshi Nakamoto Institute — Literature Section BitMEX Research — The best industry research in the space. Bitcoin Tech Talk — Medium publication featuring a variety of authors and analysis — Newsletter Vijay Boyapati — The Bullish Case for Bitcoin Jimmy Song — Bitcoin Educator and Developer. Jameson Lopp — Bitcoin Programmer and CTO at Casa. Willy Woo — Cryptocurrency investment and trading metrics analysis. Nic Carter — Partner at Castle Island Ventures with insightful analysis of Bitcoin. Hasu — Independent cryptocurrency researcher on multiple aspects of Bitcoin and crypto industry. BitFury Research — Comprehensive and insightful industry analysis. Tuur Demeester — Excellent economics analysis of Bitcoin. Elaine Ou — Elaine’s Idle Mind — Compelling cryptocurrency analysis among broader topics. Uncommon Core — A dual blog by Hasu and Su Zhu (CEO of Three Arrows Capital). Blockstream Blog — A leading Bitcoin development company with some fascinating technology products. Bitcoin Online Courses and Resource/Metrics Repositories Online courses are a powerful discovery for the hungry mind in the digital era. Classes and resources on Bitcoin, blockchain, and crypto are becoming increasingly prevalent and offer some of the most well-defined pathways for learning more about Bitcoin. Jameson Lopp’s Bitcoin Information and Resources — Likely the most comprehensive Bitcoin resource list available. Satoshi Nakamoto Institute — Various resources on Bitcoin’s history, design, literature, and more. Blockchain Transparency Institute — A must for new investors looking to avoid wash trading and bad exchanges. Coursera — Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies — Follows Princeton Book on Bitcoin. Udemy — Series of Bitcoin videos and lectures. Blockchain at Berkeley — edX Courses for Bitcoin and blockchain technology. Khan Academy — Bitcoin courses and video lectures. Buidl Bootcamp — Developer courses for Bitcoin (in Python) by Justin Moon. Bitcoin for Beginners — Andreas Antonopoulos YouTube series. Bitcoin Designed — Design resources and infographics for Bitcoin. Statistical Charts, Network Charts, and Block Explorers Once you have a firm grasp on the overarching concept of Bitcoin and how it functions, metrics websites and open-source analytics tools can become exceptionally useful for understanding the inner workings of a public blockchain. Many of the below websites are powerful mediums for evaluating real-time data (i.e., mining difficulty, transaction volume, etc.) that can be practical for a variety of applications. Coinmetrics — Excellent data charts, graphs, insights, and analysis. Messari/OnChainFX — Everything from crypto news to analysis and metrics. BitcoinVisuals — In-depth Bitcoin blockchain and Lightning Network metrics. BitcoinWisdom — Excellent charts and data for Bitcoin’s mining and difficulty. Blockhain.com — Custodial wallet service with comprehensive charts and on-chain metrics for Bitocin. P2SH — Transaction and network metrics for Bitcoin. Nomics — Cryptocurrency resources and market data. CoinDance — Comprehensive metrics and network statistics on Bitcoin — includes interesting information on LocalBitcoins in various geographical regions as well. Conclusion Obviously, this is not a comprehensive list of all the quality resources available on Bitcoin. There are more categories, including podcasts, conferences, video presentations, the Bitcoin subreddit, merchant directories, professional trading resources, cryptoeconomics literature, developer tools, wiki guides, and much more. Bitcoin spawned an entire industry, and it is promising to know that its abundance of resources is continually expanding. We believe that the above resources should be an effective start for any newcomer (or critic) who would like to learn more about the fundamental value proposition, technical design, and social/economic impact that Bitcoin can have. For core cryptocurrency components, many of the above resources can also help to supplement your knowledge as we all know how fast everything in the crypto sphere moves. And in the world of cryptocurrencies, always remember — don’t trust, verify. The post Educational Resources for Bitcoin: Complete Guide appeared first on Blockonomi. View the full article
  5. By CCN: An emerging economy which expects to attract $5.8 billion worth of Foreign Direct Investments is belittling its goals with an anti-technology stance. Myanmar is the latest developing country that is hinting to shut doors in the face of bitcoin, a decade-old global cryptocurrency which proposes to replace banks with a decentralized network of transaction validators and bookkeepers. Anybody with a decent internet connection can participate in the bitcoin economy, which further makes it an attractive asset for people with limited gateways to participate in global economies.

  7. The return of notorious cryptocurrency ponzi scheme Bitconnect is closer than ever, its mysterious organizers claim after revealing a July launch date. Bitconnect: Unapologetically Fraudulent A fresh tweet from the Twitter account of the so-called ‘Bitconnect 2.0’ May 18 confirms the scheme is set to debut – again – on July 1. Not only that, but true to the style of deception for which the original Bitconnect became known, a fake exchange partnership has already surfaced. The owner of the Twitter account added prospective investors can purchase tokens on major cryptocurrency exchange Binance – when in fact this is simply a lie. “Welcome everyone back to Bitconnect 2.0[.] We will launch Bitconnect2.0 on July 1st,” the post reads. Welcome everyone back to Bitconnect 2.0 We will launch Bitconnect2.0 on July 1st visit our website for more Infoshttps://t.co/xKJ10yeYoP — Bitconnect2.0 (@Bitconnect2_0) May 18, 2019 Despite claiming further information is available on its ‘official’ website, the social media activity remains the only hint of the impending plans. The site consists only of a sign-up form for updates, a countdown timer and a duplicate of the Twitter feed. Beyond the assumed launch date, however, the operations of the latest incarnation of Bitconnect remain a mystery. As Bitcoinist reported, the original Bitconnect – ostensibly an exchange and lending platform – crashed in January 2018 after it became sufficiently known the company was fraudulent. Formerly something of celebrity meme in the crypto space, thanks mostly to events speaker Carlos Matos, the mood turned sour as Bitcoin came off its all-time highs of $20,000. Investors saw the value of their Bitconnect tokens drop to virtually nothing in minutes, with cryptocurrency industry figures lamenting that those without experience were still easy targets for scammers. Criminal proceedings followed, yet it remains unclear whether Bitconnect 2.0 has any relation to its predecessor beyond sharing a name. A Scam To Rival OneCoin On social media, reactions overwhelmingly focused on issuing warnings not to interact with the scheme, even if it should succeed in offering new tokens. Others noted the Bitconnect.io domain name will expire before the alleged launch date. Binance and CEO Changpeng Zhao (known as CZ) have yet to comment on the Twitter account’s claims of a partnership. Another entity meanwhile is attempting to gather members for a Bitconnect community on messaging platform Discord, participants already numbering close to 500. Bitconnect’s resurgence comes in line with the renaissance seen throughout Bitcoin and altcoin markets. Equally poetic is the timing following on from the ‘death’ of fellow ponzi scheme OneCoin, the founders of which spent years accruing around $4 billion. Now subject to legal action, OneCoin nevertheless succeeded in fooling the public to hand over huge amounts of money, despite warnings from various governments and associated watchdogs. What do you think about Bitconnect 2.0? Let us know in the comments below!

  9. If you’re looking for a seamless swap service platform to make crypto-to-crypto exchanges, then it might be worth checking out ChangeNow. The platform has come a long way since its launch in late 2017, subsequently supporting over 170 different digital tokens across more than 30,000 trading pairs . This includes hallmark coins such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, as well as a range of lesser known ERC-20 tokens. If you’re thinking about using the ChangeNOW swap service platform, or simply want to find out whether they’re right for you, take some time to first read our comprehensive guide. Visit ChangeNOW What is ChangeNOW? In a nutshell, ChangeNow is a platform that allows users to seamlessly swap cryptocurrencies with other cryptocurrencies. For example, need to swap Bitcoin for Ethereum, or maybe Litecoin for Monero? You can achieve this at the click of a button via the ChangeNOW platform. However, while at first glance this sounds like any other exchange or swap service operating in the crypto space, ChangeNOW appears to have some clear advantages. First and foremost, as a non-custodial service, ChangeNOW does not store or hold any of the digital tokens that they support, subsequently ensuring that users can swap coins in a safe and secure eco-system. Furthermore, the ChangeNOW platform does not require users to register an account to begin using their swap services. This makes the exchange process fast and burden-free. For those that remember the struggles that leading exchanges had during the crypto craze of late 2017 – insofar that platforms had to temporarily restrict new signs-ups to deal with extreme demand levels, the non-registration model at ChangeNOW is highly notable. Furthermore, a key selling point from the team at ChangeNow is that they do not place any limits on the amount of cryptocurrency that you can swap. Exchange limitations is something that often frustrates traders, especially when they need to react to a key market event. When it comes to speed, we found that the ChangeNOW swap service is able to execute crypto exchanges in approximately 10-20 minutes in the vast majority of cases. However, in rarer cases, this can take up to an hour. It is also important to note that a key aspect to the ChangeNOW ecosystem is that the underlying technology has been integrated with a range of partnered third party platforms. This is crucial to the swap service framework, as it ensures that users are able to obtain the best possible rate at the time of the transaction. With that being said, in the next section we will provide a quick overview as to how the swap service works. How Does the Swap Service Work at ChangeNOW? As noted above, when you access the ChangeNOW platform to perform a swap, there is no requirement to register an account. As such, you can get started straight away. Firstly, you are required to select the two currencies that you want to swap. In the drop down menu associated with the ‘You Send’ button, select the digital asset that you currently hold. At the time of writing, this can be from any of the 170+ cryptocurrencies currently supported by the platform. Next, select the cryptocurrency that you want to receive via the “You Get” drop down box. You will then need to enter the quantity of coins that you want to swap. Once you do, the “You Get” box will update with the quantity of coins you will receive. For example, if you currently hold 1.5 BTC, and you want to swap it for LTC, then the amount of LTC you will receive will show in its respective box. In the next stage of the swap service transaction, you will be required to enter the wallet address of the receiving coins. If you don’t have a wallet address for the cryptocurrency you are looking to receive, then ChangeNOW allows you to do this via one of their partner services. Next, verify the information you entered, and confirm the swap. At this point of the transaction, ChangeNOW will display a unique deposit address for you to send your coins to. Once this is received, the platform will autonomously find the best rate available via its partnered exchanges, before finalizing the swap. All in, you should expect the end-to-end swap process to be concluded in 10-20 minutes. The key point about the above example is that the process required no registrations, emails, or passwords, nor were any limits initiated. NOW Token To further increase the capabilities of the ChangeNOW platform, the project recently issued its own digital token. Known as the Now Token, it is now listed on Binance DEX, as well as IDEX and EtherDelta. In fact, further research suggests that the NOW token was actually the first token to be issued on the Binance Chain. The token itself is split 50/50 between the Binance Chain (BEP2 Standard) and Ethereum (ERC-20 standard). At the time of writing, users can seamlessly swap ERC-20 tokens to BEP2, although BEP2 to ERC-20 swaps are planned for the very near future. One of the key concepts to the NOW token is that it makes is super easy to migrate an alternative token to its new mainnet.In a nutshell, the team at ChangeNOW can facilitate a token-to-mainnet migration by designing a bespoke workflow on behalf of the user. In doing so, those holding the respective token will then be able to perform simple swaps with other digital currencies. Nevertheless, by simply holding the NOW token, users on the platform are afforded a range of key benefits. This includes enhanced support from the ChangeNOW team, more favorable affiliate conditions (such as increased revenue share), and even better rates on exchanges. In order to obtain the NOW token, this can be achieved by participating in the ChangeNOW Airdrop, or alternatively, by purchasing them on one of the aforementioned third party exchanges. Has ChangeNOW Formed any Notable Partnerships? When we went through the end-to-end review process, we were very keen to see whether or not any established crypto-related organizations were associated with the ChangeNOW platform. To this extent, we were surprised to see how many hallmark names had integrated the ChangeNOW protocol into their systems. For example, hugely popular cryptocurrency wallet Exodus added support for ChangeNow swaps in September 2018. This essentially means that those holding funds in their Exodus wallet can make a crypto-to-crypto swap without needing to leave the wallet interface. Exodus themselves ensures that private keys are encrypted during the transaction process, subsequently keeping ChangeNow to their promise of being a non-custodial swap service. Notably, Exodus is not alone in their support for the ChangeNow protocol. Other leading wallet providers such as Trezor, Guarda, ClassicEtherWallet, Ledger, Atomic Wallet, and as previously mentioned, Binance, have all taken the ChangeNOW plunge. What Other Notable Products or Services Does ChangeNOW Offer? Upon concluding our review process, we also came across a couple of additional ChangeNOW services that we felt warranted a mention. First and foremost, we were interested to explore the project’s NOWPayments product. In a nutshell, ChangeNOW allows merchants to start accepting cryptocurrency as a means of payment. This includes leading coins such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin, as well as a number of stablecoins. Much like in the case of integrating PayPal, the NOWPayments protocol can be added to a merchant’s website through a simple widget. When users proceed to pay with their chosen cryptocurrency, the NOWPayments protocol will perform an automatic conversion. The reason for this is to avoid the volatile fluctuations often associated with the crypto markets. Moreover, crypto payments facilitated via the NOWPayments protocol are instantly withdrawn to the merchant wallet, subsequently making the process seamless for all parties involved in the transaction. We also took note to the project’s LightingNOW service. The purpose of the LightingNOW service is to facilitate a well-connected and stable Lighting node, subsequently easing the process at which blockchain assets are transferred. Not only does this enable instant payments that require no confirmations on-chain, but the service is highly scalable. Furthermore, the LightingNOW protocol can also facilitate cross-chain automatic swaps. ChangeNOW Review: The Verdict? In summary, the team at ChangeNOW have come a long way since their inception in late 2017. Their core product – the swap service platform, allows users to exchange cryptocurrencies in a seamless manner, without any need to register an account. Moreover, the service, which usually takes in the region of just 10-20 minutes, does not place any restrictions on the amount of cryptocurrency tokens that you can swap. We were also impressed with the number of notable partnerships that the project has since formed. Whether it’s their integration with Ledger, Trezor, Binance or Exodus, forming partnerships with such hallmark names can only add further weight to legitimacy of the project. Finally, it is also worth keeping an eye on some of the project’s latest innovations, such as it’s NOWPayments and LightingNOW protocols.

  11. There is no doubting that Bitcoin and crypto markets have been on fire recently. Since the beginning of April Bitcoin has almost doubled in price driving market capitalization back over $200 billion again. The ice from the crypto winter appears to have melted and some industry analysts are convinced it is now definitely over. Tom Lee’s 13 Reasons Fundstrat Global Advisors’ permabull Thomas Lee tweeted his thirteen reasons why the crypto winter is now over. After stating what he described as a ‘disturbing pullback to $6,200’ Lee added that the return to $8,000 was confirmation that the trend is intact. Some of Lee’s reasons have more weight than others but he starts with a look back to November 2018 and the Bitcoin Cash hash war that many speculated caused the final capitulation down to $3,200. Next he observed that Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust saw its NAV premium fall to 5%, its lowest level since 2017 which also implied that the capitulation had occurred. The fund premium has since surged to 41%. Daily on-chain transactions have turned positive for the first time since January 2018 and by March Fundstrat’s Bitcoin Misery Index crossed above 67 for the first time since August 2017. In early April Bitcoin closed above the 200 day moving average for the first time in thirteen months. Over the counter (OTC) volumes have also started surging with multiple brokers reporting new client activity surging 60-70 percent compared with four months ago. There was also speculation that US president Trump’s escalated trade war with China has spurred buyers there into loading up on Bitcoin as a safer store of value. The Bitcoin ‘golden cross’ in late April was a huge technical indicator that the trend has reversed. Minimal reaction to negative news such as the Tether imbroglio and the Binance hack also confirms major confidence in crypto markets. Finally this month’s Consensus crypto conference was the confirmation that crypto winter is over according to Lee. After a disturbing pullback to ~$6,200, #Bitcoin back >$8,000 further cementing positive trend intact. As we said a few weeks ago, Consensus 2019 @coindesk was to prove whether crypto winter is over… …confirmed pic.twitter.com/M8ni4g2YvX — Thomas Lee (@fundstrat) May 19, 2019 Big Bullish Week Bitcoin price 7 days. Coinmarketcap.com Bitcoin had a huge week with record volume levels over $100 billion and a massive candle to close it. With a surge of 13 percent in seven days all talk of that massive correction has diminished as analysts look for the next levels of resistance. Full time trader ‘The Crypto Dog’ has done the charts and called weekly resistance at $8,215 and support around $7,300. He added; “Hell of a bullish weekly close on #Bitcoin with near record breaking volume, solidifying the strength and validity of this rally.” At the time of writing Bitcoin had surpassed $8,000 again and was trading up 2.7 percent on the day. It reached an intraday high of $8,250 where it hit resistance during Asian trading a few hours ago.

  16. Ethereum price climbed higher recently above $238.00 and $246.00. ETH traded towards $265.00 and it is currently correcting lower towards key supports. Ethereum price rebounded nicely from the $231.10 swing low to $264.99. Recently, there was a break below a short term ascending channel with support at $257.00 on the 30-minute chart. ETH price remains well bid on the downside near the $246.00 and $242.00 support levels. Read: Trade at Vantage FX Ethereum Price Analysis (ETH to USD) Recently, there was a strong comeback from bitcoin and Ethereum. BTC surged above the $8,000 level and ETH price climbed above the $238.00 and $246.00 resistance levels. It even broke $260.00 and traded to a new weekly high at $264.99. Click to Enlarge Chart Looking at the 30-minute chart of ETH/USD, the pair started a strong rebound from the $231.10 swing low. It settled above the $246.00 pivot level and recently traded as high as $264.99. It is currently correcting lower below the $260.00 level and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $231.10 low to $264.99 high. Besides, there was a break below a short term ascending channel with support at $257.00 on the same chart. The price is currently trading below the $255.00 level and the 25 simple moving average (30-min). It tested a major support area near $246.00 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent upward move from the $231.10 low to $264.99 high. At the outset, the price is trading in a range below the $255.00 level and the 25 simple moving average (30-min). A clear break above the $255.00 and $260.00 resistance levels is must for a fresh increase above the $265.00 and $268.00 levels. On the downside, the $246.00 support area holds the key. If there is a break below $246.00, the next immediate support is near the $242.00 level. Any further declines could push Ethereum price towards the $231.100 swing low. The current price action is neutral to bearish, but as long as ETH price is above the $242.00 support level, it is likely to bounce back above $260.00.

  17. Video games are all about speed. Latency kills – in the case of a game like Overwatch, quite literally. The gaming industry isn’t about to adopt a technology that leaves D.Va bleeding in the dust because some poor schmuck’s server is in Cleveland, while the despondent player’s in Tallinn. Game over – not just for Hana Song, but also for Blizzard’s chances of securing further revenue from that customer. But blockchain tech isn’t quite there yet – to say the least – which is why Bluzelle is turning to gaming as one of its ‘pain-point’ markets. Although partnerships are still under wraps, the startup is vying for attention in a niche market that could serve entertainment studios across the globe. The last time Crypto Briefing checked in with Bluzelle, a decentralized data delivery network (DDN), the team had just concluded its public and private fundraising rounds. Since then, the development team has been designing an enterprise-grade database network from scratch. Today the Bluzelle team launches its first DDN product, a distributed data cache service. A data cache is a “hardware or software component that stores data so that future requests for that data can be served faster.” Pavel Bains, CEO and co-founder of Bluzelle, stated his team “had a year to build, learn, and see what works. Now is a great time to catch up with everybody and show what has happened over the past 12 months.” This product launch is the first of many Bluzelle’s ultimate goal is to develop a DDN that includes both a database and data caching services. But they are not the only company at the intersection of blockchain and data storage. Comparable projects developing decentralized storage solutions include Siacoin, Filecoin, and Storj. While these other projects primarily focus on building decentralized file storage platforms (i.e., Dropbox), Bluzelle has focused its sights on data storage. However, creating infrastructure for a new database takes a lot of time and effort to build from the bottom, up. Further, the database requires consumer and enterprise adoption, along with the associated security needs. However, the journey of a million miles starts with the first step. To enter the market today, Bains and the team asked, “What can we deliver now? Something that is a great product that allows us to get customers and take away friction points?” The team landed on data cache solutions. As it stands, Bluzelle is the only blockchain company competing against large-scale centralized data cache services such as Redis and Memcached. Both of which are technologies that are older than ten years. The Bluzelle solution? Set up 25+ data centers across the globe to establish nodes and push data closer to various regional users. What is Bluzelle’s primary target market, and how can they grow? Bluzelle has identified three industries to seek further use cases and partnerships: gaming, media, and internet of things (IoT). Initially, Bluzelle’s new data cache service is marketed to serve the video game industry. Modern video games not only encompass consoles, but also mobile devices. Bains believes “games are becoming more online and global. The security and the performance needs of those types of games, as more of them come out, are going to have to rely on decentralized technology.” To emphasize the speed of their data cache service, the Bluzelle team recently conducted an online demonstration comparing the speeds of Redis to those of Bluzelle. The latter was much faster than its centralized counterpart; up to 20x in some test regions. Bains has a professional background in the video gaming industry. That experience allowed him to identify a pain point that, “As a global data cache, [the video game company] doesn’t know where their customer is coming from.” A video game company in Japan or South Korea might have users in South America. If a video game takes off in another region, such as Russia, then the video game company must locate a data server closer to its customer base. After locating a new data server, the infrastructure must be replicated and installed to ensure there is no latency in the gameplay. The process is timely and costly; Bains goes on to say, “By that time, the user might have just left.” With Bluzelle there is a data server in multiple regions across the globe, and video game developers will only need to connect to the DDN once. Afterwards, if the customer base picks up in another region, Bluzelle can move and store the video game company’s data cache in a local node. Bains states, “At the heart of it, [Bluzelle is] trying to make games run fast around the world without [the game developer] having any headaches.” What are the next steps? Data collection and staking Bains reiterated this is just the first, of many of Bluzelle’s steps. Looking forward, the DDN provider is examining a possible integration into video game consoles, as all that is necessary to be a producer on the network is computing power and storage capacity. However, before real-world producers and consumers can utilize the network, Bluzelle must finalize its payment structures and staking systems. The team is in the “first stage” of exploring these models and expects to have a more concrete outline established by Q3 of 2019. Bluzelle kept its head down during the bear market of 2018, identified its target markets, and built a product to service a niche. Bains believes this is just the beginning, and there is lots of potential for growth. In the gaming industry alone, he says, there is a “massive market [that is] non-blockchain related. It’s not hyperbole to say we’re barely scratching the surface. There’s a huge upside.” The post Countless Lives Lost To Latency: Bluzelle Aims To Save Our Gaming Heroes appeared first on Crypto Briefing. View the full article
